By Claire DeSouza, PhD, MS, MPH, Associate EditorClaire DeSoto is a research associate at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nonprofit research and advocacy organization in Washington, DC, that advocates for the public health, safety, and well-being of people living in the United States.
She is the author of “How to Reduce Environmental Harm from Toxic Chemicals,” which she co-authored with fellow researchers and editors at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the Association for Science, Engineering and Medicine of the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
For the past two years, DeSousseo has been working to develop a toolkit for reducing environmental harm to people living with cancer and other chronic diseases by identifying common toxicants that are causing or are posing health risks to people in the communities where they live and work.
The toolkit is the result of her years of research and the collaboration of several partners and community partners.
DeSoto’s toolkit includes the following elements:A detailed list of common environmental toxins, with an explanation for their presence in everyday living and their effect on people with cancer;A comprehensive list of ways to reduce exposure to the toxins, including the use of chemicals that are safe, environmentally sound, or environmentally friendly;A detailed description of the hazards and effects of each environmental toxin;A list of commonly used and effective non-toxic alternatives to toxic chemicals;And links to the information and resources to help you reduce your exposure to toxic environmental toxins.

It is also being distributed to local cancer support groups and to public health agencies in dozens of communities in the US and Canada.
De Soto is the lead author of the “What’s in Your Environment” article in Scientific American, a peer-reviewed science journal that specializes in health and environmental science.
The article includes an extensive review of the literature and has received numerous accolades from scientists, physicians, and others who have evaluated the data.

This article will help you identify the most common environmental pollutants that affect people living and working with cancer, and what to do about them.
You can use this resource to identify chemicals that pose the greatest risk to people who live with cancer or other chronic health conditions, or that are harmful to the environment in general.

The answer to this question is very simple.
People living with chronic diseases are exposed to a great deal of pollution and pollution-related problems from everyday activities.
The most important part of any strategy to reduce your personal and environmental exposure to these pollutants is to identify and take steps to reduce those exposures.

The environmental impact of a toxic substance is influenced by many factors, including how much of it it contains, the amount of pollution it causes, how much it is emitted into the air, and how much people or other animals can eat.
The more toxins a community can absorb through everyday living, the more harm it will cause to other people and wildlife.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists environmental hazards and risks that are linked to a number of different toxins and chemicals.
The following resources are essential to finding out what environmental hazards you can take action to reduce.

The EPA recommends that you take steps as soon as you notice that there is a problem.
If you don’t have to, you can make the best of a difficult situation and take the necessary steps to minimize the impact of your environment on your health.
For example, by keeping your home clean and having your garbage collected and disposed of, you are reducing your exposure and decreasing your risk for a toxic chemical or pollutant exposure.
What is a safe level of exposure to a toxic pollutant?
Environmental toxins and toxic substances pose different levels of risks to different people depending on their toxicity level.
For example, a toxic environmental pollutant may have an extremely high toxicant concentration that can cause significant health problems.
People who are exposed by exposure to high levels of these chemicals have a higher risk for developing certain chronic
